Peel’s Red Light Cam­era Pro­gram has been up­dated with 13 new lo­ca­tions. 11 of the 26 ex­ist­ing lo­ca­tions were de­com­mis­sioned and the other 15 ex­ist­ing lo­ca­tions have been re­fur­bished and re­tained to main­tain a to­tal of 28 lo­ca­tions in Peel. Staff eval­u­ated the lo­ca­tions based on the “Safety Per­for­mance Func­tion” model to de­ter­mine lo­ca­tions with the high­est po­ten­tial for im­prove­ments with a red light cam­era. Staff also con­sulted with Peel Re­gional Po­lice on new and ex­ist­ing lo­ca­tions to de­ter­mine the fi­nal lo­ca­tions.

Derry Road at Win­ston Churchill Boule­vard Driv­ers have ad­vance warn­ing of a red light cam­era from sig­nage lead­ing up to red light cam­era in­ter­sec­tions. The cam­eras are on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are con­nected to the traf­fic light (sig­nal) and to sen­sors that are in­stalled just be­fore the stop line. The sys­tem con­stantly mon­i­tors the traf­fic light (sig­nal), and the cam­era takes a pic­ture of any ve­hi­cle that doesn’t stop at the red light.

Pho­tos are re­viewed by the Pro­vin­cial Of­fence Of­fi­cers and tick­ets are mailed to own­ers of the ve­hi­cles. The set fine for run­ning a red light is $325, which in­cludes a $60 vic­tim sur­charge and $5 court cost.
